WORKSHOP EXTRAVAGANZA

FRIDAY, 9 APRIL 2021 * 13:30 – 17:00 CEST

What is the workshop extravaganza?

Virtual conferences are mostly passive learning. The workshop extravaganza is not!

We’re tired of watching presentations online. Instead, we believe that online learning is best done through interactive workshops and discussions with others. Our community of professional online Facilitators created the “Workshop Extravaganza” to offer you an awesome selection of remote workshops to take your online skills to the next level.

We promise that there will be no presentations, no lurkers, and no powerpoints.

We offer experiential learning… and playful fun.

You will get:

  • Welcome and icebreaker in Kumospace, a virtual lounge where you can mix and mingle (check out the video on their homepage) or just sit by the piano and listen to music. It’s fun and easy to use – and something different than breakout rooms.
  • TWO 60-minute interactive, online workshops from an experienced, professional remote Facilitator.
  • Closing networking mixer.
  • A six-pack stomach from all the laughing. 😉 Ok, we can’t promise that. But if it helps, we’ll encourage you to do sit-ups during the breaks.

Technical considerations

This is not a “webinar”! And there are no presentations. You will be engaging in live conversations with real human beings. Expect to be heard and seen throughout.

As with any remote meeting, each participant brings part of the meeting space with them. Please help yourself and others by ensuring you:

  • Call from a quiet place.
  • Have a stable broadband internet connection. Optimum bandwidth, i.e. internet speed on your side will be at least 10 Mbps download / upload. You can measure it using speedtest.net.
  • Use a headset.
  • Turn your video camera on.
  • To optimise your set-up, follow these suggestions on how to have a great video conferencing setup.
  • Join the Extravaganza on a laptop or desktop. The workshops are immersive and experiential; you will have a better experience if you can interact with a variety of tools easily.

#2 – True connection, deep listening, curiosity and empathy online: why, what and how – with Colleen Leclercq

The majority of people in the workplace occupied shared physical office spaces before 2020.

Many relationships were left to chance and some of the most crucial relationship-building skills were rarely, if ever, practised with intention.

We know that if we engage in physical exercise we become fit and strong. The same is true with interpersonal relational skills.

Consistent practice enables interpersonal fitness and strength.

Now that many people who can work remotely do, co-creating conscious and intentional relationships takes practising key interpersonal skills, with a few tweaks in the way we show up, connect and hold space for ourselves and others.

This highly interactive workshop promises to reveal personal patterns in self, others and the space between, to enable choiceful shifts and an opportunity to practice some of these often uncomfortable or difficult interpersonal skills in a safe space.
